OCEAN OF DREAMS: THE VISIONARY CINEMA OF ANDREI TARKOVSKY

July 19 – 29, 2013, at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres

The beautiful is hidden from the eyes of those who are not searching for the truth,” Andrei Tarkovsky wrote in his book Sculpting in Time. Perhaps the greatest Russian filmmaker since Eisenstein, Tarkovsky (1932-86) searched for truth and, over the course of seven features, discovered beauty rarely glimpsed in the hurried pace of contemporary cinema.

Working within the strictures of the Soviet film industry taught Tarkovsky how to comment on modern social and cultural conditions without directly addressing them, and the portrait of medieval icon painter ANDREI RUBLEV, the sci-fi psychodrama SOLARIS and autobiographical THE MIRROR are rich with symbols and imagery whose meaning reveals itself over time. Tarkovsky’s artistic ambition and desire to plumb the mysteries of the human soul are similar to those of Ingmar Bergman, who was an ardent admirer of the Russian filmmaker.

Series also includes THE SACRIFICE and a brand-new print of NOSTALGHIA.

Series programmed by Gwen Deglise and Grant Moninger. Program notes by John Hagelston.
